Beyond Boundaries Presents 'The Unafraid' - November 15
The Equity and Campus Diversity Office, the Communication Department, and the Burchfield Penney Art Center are pleased to announce the screening of The Unafraid, the next film in the Beyond Boundaries: Dare to Be Diverse screening and discussion series for fall 2018, on Thursday, November 15, at 7:00 p.m. in the Burchfield Penney Art Center’s Peter and Elizabeth C. Tower Auditorium.
The feature-length documentary follows the personal lives of three DACA students in Georgia, a state that has banned them from attending its top state universities and disqualifies them from receiving in-state tuition at any other public college. Shot in an observational style over a period of four years, this film takes an intimate look at the lives of Alejandro, Silvia, and Aldo as they navigate activism, pursuing their right to education, and fighting for the rights of their families and communities.
The Unafraid shows what it means to grow up both American and undocumented in the United States.
